The Law Spot – Connected Kids
Young people, parents and schools
Funded by the Law Foundation of South Australia, this 2009 series is still remarkably relevant, as young people, parents and schools continue to adapt to changing technology in our society. As well as looking at rights and responsibilities of students, parents and schools, this series takes a close look at internet safety, cyber-bullying and also of course at the many positives for our connected kids in this digital age.
